As the 2009 season for the Cabrini women’s lacrosse team is coming to a close, valuable senior players will be saying their final goodbyes to their fellow teammates and coaches.

Christine Regan, senior biology major, plays defense for the women’s lacrosse team. Regan had a successful four years on the team.

Head women’s lacrosse coach Jackie Neary, expressed her appreciation for Regan.

“Chrissy Regan is one of the backbones of our defense, not to mention a great captain who is leading the team this year to the championship game. Regan, what we call her, has been a starter since freshman year. She has the best checking skill on our team,” Neary said.

While holding the title as captain of the women’s lacrosse team, Regan has some helpful advice for incoming freshman who may be interested in joining the team.

“Just have fun, don’t take anything too seriously on the field. Play your hardest in every game, because this experience flies by so fast. I can’t believe we’re already in the playoff season,” Regan said.

Regan has been an active player of women’s lacrosse team for eight years, four with the Cabrini Cavaliers.

Regan explaned, “This was the first year since I’ve been at Cabrini that we’ve beaten Scranton, Ursinus, Rowan and Colorado College all in the same season. We really worked so hard.”

Her parents played an active role in encouraging her to try out for the lacrosse team.

“I wasn’t going to play lacrosse in college. I was just going to stick to soccer. I thought it would have been too much to be a biology major and play two sports. I can’t imagine not playing for the Cabrini Cavaliers and not meeting all the friends I have now,” Regan said.

“We’re all best friends and if it wasn’t for every person on the team it wouldn’t be as fun.”

“Regan has been my best friend on and off the field for the past eight years. It’s sad to see this all come to an end but we had a great run, filled with a lot of memories,” senior teammate Christina Romano said.

She also knows that she wouldn’t have worked as hard without the encouragement of the coaches.

“They always compliment us and have all the confidence in the world that we can come away with a championship,” Regan said.

“I know all of her teammates value her both on and off the field. She is as strong on the field as well as in the classroom. I am finding it very difficult to let her go. This year she will be missed by everyone,” Neary said.
